  • Re: Sound system in V1-40 same as BeoLit 12?

    [quote user="Michael"] Very interesting to hear about TrueImage, it seem to work exactly as I want it to, and probably most people too. And a nice feature to not spread mono around the room. Is the TrueImage-technology perfected at B&O? [/quote] At the risk of blowing my own horn (toot toot!) The True Image algorithm in the V1 is one of my contributions to B&O - developing and tuning it have comprised a large part of my daily existence for the past couple of years. cheers -geoff

    [quote user="Michael"] Thanks Geoff for your most calming answer. I have to say, one of the reasons I usually pick DTS when available, is to see the nice piano intro that they sometimes have. But I also feel that DTS sounds better somehow. I came to think about another thing, how about if the source material is stereo. Can the V1 make it into fake surround? Like DTS Neo:6 for example, which I use on my yamaha receiver sometimes. I am not planning to use a surround setup with it right now

    [quote user="Hero71"] He did not explain why he made these adjustments.. The subwoofer output was raised to +3db and he changed the xover frequency to 150Hz. I have BL8000's. No rear speakers. [/quote] What subwoofer do you have? Or are you bass managing to the 8k's? An adjustment of +/-3 dB on any speaker is not unusual to compensate for room or speaker placement. In fact, I have never seen a setup that didn't require some level adjustment on that magnitude. Cheers -geoff

    [quote user="Hero71"]I have a BL11[/quote] I've been thinking about your options. One possibly interesting thing to try is the following: - Make a new speaker group with the same Speaker Types, Speaker Roles, Speaker Distances, and Speaker Levels as the one you currently have. . Set the Bass Mangement Crossover Frequency to 120 Hz (the default for your setup) Now, you can play with one of the two speaker groups and switch back and forth between them quickly (using Speaker + NUMBER on

    [quote user="Michael"]I am not sure that all players can decode the signal. And if they do, is it good enough?[/quote] I can't speak definitively to the first issue - however, I will say that I have yet to see a Blu-ray player that does not support all of the currently standard formats for Blu-ray and DVD. As to the second question, certification by Dolby and/or DTS means that you have their assurance that the decoded PCM conversion to the HDMI output is correct, whether it's in

    [quote user="Hero71"] Is there any way to revert bass management settings to their default values? My dealer changed the crossover frequency to 150Hz and I would like to try and compare what impact this really has compared to the default setting. [/quote] Hi Jan, The Bass Management settings are determined based on your Speaker Types in a given Speaker Group. To force the parameters to re-calculate, I believe that you could either - add a dummy speaker to the group, save, then go back in

  • Re: B&O Beolab 8000 & AIrport Express Volume Problems

    [quote user="Lars"] we have discussed that phenomena during our trip to Struer with Geoff Martin and he told us that he is actually using one of those regulators himself in his installation. [/quote] You took the words right out of my mouth. I do, however, have a bunch of caveats: This is a quick-n-dirty solution with advantages and disadvantages. I'm using it between my AirPort Express and my BeoLab 3's in the bedroom - where they're used only at night after the kids are asleep

    [quote user="Hero71"] Some positives after 1 week: Top notch sound processor. My BL8000's sound better than before. You do have to make use of the sound modes because they have a serious impact. I have never seen this amount of sound settings on any consumer product. Some negatives: Settings menu can be overwhelming in the beginning. Manuals (both the quick guide, the normal guide and the sound specification guide) do not explain everything there is to know. For example: speaker groups

    [quote user="beolion"] I think (hope) that Steve will add some additional information. He did talk with Geoff about something which I really did not understand :-) [/quote] Don't feel bad - I didn't understand it either... ;-) Cheers -geoff

  • Re: B&O Play TV coming this quarter

    [quote user="stefan"] Geoff, thanks for joining Beoworld and for all your kind explanations. [/quote] You're welcome! My pleasure! Actually, we have a symbiotic relationship - since I surf Beoworld for real-world customer opinions, reactions, comments and complaints, I think that it's only fair that I give something back in return. Maybe this is akin to sustainability in information mining, historically known as the YSMBISY Principle. (You Scratch My Back, I'll Scratch Yours
